The Nurse Aide II course provides training in selected advanced procedures. Emphasis is placed on sterile techniques, wound and tracheostomy care, respiratory procedures, catheterization, irrigation and ostomy care.
Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate the skills necessary to qualify as a Nurse Aide II with the North Carolina Board of Nursing.
The following clinical paperwork must be uploaded to CastleBranch on or before the date of the final exam for your class:
If all paperwork isn't submitted, reviewed and approved on time, the student will not be eligible to take the final exam and will be dismissed from the program with an "NG" grade. Allow up to one week for paperwork to be reviewed and approved.

Clinical facilities require that all Nurse Aide II students submit a criminal background check and urine drug screening. Wake Tech and the clinical facilities have designated CastleBranch as the provider of these services. Wake Tech will not accept results from any company other than CastleBranch.
Students are responsible for the cost of the criminal background check, drug test and medical documentation manager, and all costs are non-refundable.
The background check is good for one year and must be valid throughout your entire class. All types of felony or misdemeanor convictions, pending charges and questionable histories will be reviewed by the clinical site, and admittance into the clinical setting will be determined by that facility. The clinical facility's decision is final.
The following criminal histories will likely disqualify a student from participating in the clinical component:
Any student with a flagged criminal background check that has been declined by the clinical location will be contacted by a Wake Tech staff member.
The urine sample for a drug test must be submitted before your class goes to clinical. Please note the clinical dates for your class when you register. Any student with a positive drug test will be contacted by CastleBranch.

Transfers are dependent on availability in the new class. In order to transfer to another section, the student must email [email protected] the following:
Wake Tech emergency cancellations and closings are posted on the college website, and messages are on the main phone line at 919-866-5000. Students with a Wake Tech email are automatically registered to receive Wake Tech WARN email alerts from the college emergency alert system. Students can also sign up with Wake Tech WARN to receive phone text messages and voicemail in the event of an emergency or inclement weather situation.
Nurse Aide classes scheduled from August through March will have inclement weather make-up dates built into their class schedules. In the event the college closes and an entire lab or clinical class day is missed, make-up dates will be used in the same order they are listed on the class schedule. If closings result in the partial lab or clinical hours missed, these hours will be made up by adding hours to existing class dates. Totally seated classes that miss lecture hours due to any college closing will make up the hours online. If a totally seated or hybrid class misses a test due to any college closing, the test will be moved to the next seated class day. The attendance policy for mandatory makeup dates is the same as a regular class date.
